We would like to invite you to visit us in Brussels at the Seafood Processing Europe 27th – 29th April 2010 on the Iceland pavilion in Hall 4. TrackWell will be demonstrating Electronic Logbook and Reporting System.
TrackWell has been supplying an Electronic Reporting System for Icelandic vessels and fisheries for several years. The system gives captains and fleet managers a valuable tool to help planning future fishing trips based on experience.
New regulations in EU
According to EU regulations 1088/2008, fishing vessels greater than 24 meters in length overall will be required to electronically record and transmit logbook data on a daily basis as from 1st of January 2010. The same requirement will apply to EU fishing vessels greater than 15 meters in length overall as from 1st of July 2011.
ERS is a system for recording, reporting, processing, storage and transmission of fisheries data (catch, landing, sales and transhipment) according to EU rules. The key element in ERS is the electronic logbook. The electronic logbook is used to record and securely transmit the details of fishing operations. The information is managed by the master of the fishing vessel and is transmitted to the Member States authorities where this information is then stored in a secure data base. TrackWell is adapting the SeaData software to comply with the new regulations of EU regarding ERS.
